picnic near Burnham raises £650 for two good causes
£650 was raised for good causes when a fundraising picnic
was held near Burnham-On-Sea earlier this week.
Marie Watts organised a Picnic Fun Day on Monday 31st July at Norville
on The Causeway in Mark in aid of The Rowan Baby Bereavement Suite
at Musgrove and Mark Pre-school.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "My husband and I lost a baby last
August and so The Rowan Baby Bereavement Suite at Musgrove was very
special to us and we wanted to say thank you and help others who
go through such a difficult experience."
decided whilst out in the garden with the chickens and ducks one
day that it would be an amazing thing to have a Picnic Fun Day in
my garden where families could come for a nice day out in the summer
raised £655. Activities included water play, soft play, homemade
games, sensory time UK, planting, digging, a fire engine, tractor,
face painting, balloon modeller, the bubble man, ice cream van,
bouncy castles, obstacle course and raffle."
children could play together whilst we hopefully we make some money
for charity. Local businesses and individual families were so so
generous with raffle donations and we are so grateful."
had 200 children and their parents/carers attend so it was an amazing
turn out! Huge thanks also go to Charlie Rayner who helped to organise the day!"
